REN Keep Young Beautiful Eye Lift Beauty Shot Instant Firming

It’s not often I’ll post about a new skincare product within a week of trialling it, but I’ve been so impressed by the new eye cream from REN after just three days that I had to tell you about it as soon as I could!

If you’re a regular reader (welcome back!) then you’ll know finding a good eye cream is like the holy grail for me. Whatever the problems are, I have it going on: dark circles, fine lines, puffiness…you name it, I have it. So I was super excited to try the new Keep Young and Beautiful Instant Brightening Beauty Shot Eye Lift. And when you give a product a name that long, there are a great many expectations!

REN Keep Young and Beautiful Instnat Brightening Beauty Shot Eye Lift

While I can’t talk about the long term benefits yet (obviously), I’m loving the immediate tightening effect that’s reducing the appearance of the puffiness, which I’m pleased to say lasts the whole day. My skin feels firmer and smoother and I love that I can apply it over makeup without moving my concealer. So many eye creams claim to work over makeup during the day when your eyes are feeling the strain of pollution or staring at a laptop screen all day, but they always end up making my undereye area shiny and in desperate need of powdering. Not so this one – it’s the perfect pop-in-my-handbag product to pep up tired eyes.

It’s a gel-serum formulation that’s full of bio-actives including Glycine Betaine Complex (an amino acid) that helps to strengthen the bond between skin cells and hyaluranons that help to lift and tighten – perfect too, for the upper lid to target saggy eyelids. It absorbs instantly and invisibly, and like every REN product I’ve ever tried, it does exactly what it promises. I’m hoping with long term use I’ll see a reduction in the dark circles too, but quite frankly, the firming, tightening and smoothness it’s giving me already is enough to get me hooked.

The Keep Young and Beautiful Instant Firming Beauty Shot serum for the face has me a little obsessed too; yes because of the firming action on my skin, but also because of the heavenly scent of the rosa damascena flower oil that envelopes me (and hydrates beautifully).

Both are available now and definitely worth trying – find them here

    I don’t know if there even exists a product that will work well on dark circles. I have very bad dark circles and I have tried so many creams and gels, and nothing seem to work 🙁

    Sounds just like what I need too! Definitely putting it in my wishlist as my next eye cream purchase, although I’m loving Clinique Pep-start for a similar depuffing effect! 🙂 xx

      I would use it more as a serum and add an eye cream over the top – it’s great fro tightening, firming and depuffing, but I’m finding I need more moisture at the moment.

    This targeted eye treatment product instantly lifts, brightens and smooths the whole eye area, whilst minimizing the appearance of fine lines and firming the skin around the eye over time…so you’re getting both instant and long-term results!
